More relief needed

I really do not know how the Bush administration thinks that pumping $600 to $1,200 into every household is going to help the economy.

Most of it will be spent on growing tax bills on their property and houses. The counties and states are not asking the tough questions though, so why should President Bush?

Most of us will be paying more for utilities after the next terror attacks. And during the coming winter, the truckers (facing high gasoline and diesel prices) also will begin to strike.

The feds better do more to shake up the heads of state to cut some of their high federal excise taxes on gasoline, property taxes … etc.
